    CY Leung said on his Facebook page that Hong Kong could not rely just on official channels to do the 'explanatory work' in foreign countries.
The former Chief Executive, CY Leung, has broken his silence over the extradition bill saga and urged business chambers to send delegates overseas to explain the issue.

In a social media post, he said the ongoing controversy has seriously damaged the city's international reputation.

He said Hong Kong could not rely just on Chinese embassies, SAR economic and trade offices based overseas or even the international media to do the "explanatory work".

The former SAR leader said many business chambers have earlier said they have accepted the government’s revised proposal. So they are in the best position to comment on it, he said.

Leung, who’s also the vice-chairman of the country’s top advisory body, has not spoken out publicly on the proposed legal amendments since it was introduced by the government in February.
